Critically acclaimed MC and one-half of the famed hip hop duo Clipse, Pusha T is releasing Fear Of God II: Let Us Pray, in partnership with G.O.O.D. Music & Decon on November 8, 2011.
The 12-track release comes with four videos plus exclusive behind the scenes footage from the “Trouble On My Mind” shoot, all showcasing Pusha T at his best. Previous group efforts with Clipse including Lord Willin’ and Hell Hath No Fury solicited both critical acclaim and chart success. Pusha’s recent appearances on Kanye West’s “Runaway” and “So Appalled” were My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy highlights, raising his profile to unprecedented heights. Fear of God II takes Pusha T even further, boasting an all-star cast of features and production from past and new collaborators alike, including production from Bangladesh, The Neptunes and more.
Fear Of God II’s first single “My God” (available on iTunes now), is a perfect example of Pusha’s sharp-tongued & versatile lyricism, full of energetic punch lines and eloquently woven storytelling. It personifies what the entire record represents, Pusha’s long awaited step into the solo spotlight and, as he proclaims in “My God”, “the end of all my unrecognized greatness.” Other stand-out tracks include “Trouble On My Mind” ft. Tyler, The Creator, produced by The Neptunes, as well as “Amen” ft. Kanye West & Jeezy and “Body Work” ft. Juicy J, Meek Mill and French Montana. Full track listing below.
Pusha T is set to hit the road this Fall in support of the record, including a slew of dates across Europe.
